Ito-bina Craft Class
“Ito-bina” are a traditional hand craft that has been passed down in the Satsuma area since the start of the Edo period.
The dolls are made of a strand of hemp, which represents robustness and long life, around which layers of coloured paper representing kimono are wrapped. The dolls are finished with a piece of kimono fabric, and an intricately painted cover before being displayed.
Join Kagoshima’s only remaining Ito-bina crafts-person Reiko Niyama and try this extremely rare hand craft for yourself.
A reservation is required in advance to participate in this event.
